Date of Lecture


Description of Lecture

The allied health and medical communities are vigilant in their review of the safety of medical marijuana's active cannabinoids. Medical marijuana has received favorable legislation in 12 states and has been legalized in 16 states and the District of Columbia. The powerful marijuana lobby guarantees that medical marijuana legislation eventually will be proposed by Georgia's lawmakers to citizens and health professionals. The lecture examines the therapeutic objectives of medical marijuana and discusses what the literature says about its utility and safety profile, including the portrayal of cannabis in popular media and its history as a federally grown, government distributed healing agent.
